Main Types of Notices
Published 07/07/2020
Have you ever wondered what the difference between a funeral/death notice and a memoriam is? What about an acknowledgement? We publish many different types of notices on our site, and it can sometimes be difficult to know what the different notices are for. Death/Funeral Notice A death or funeral notice is used to announce the passing of a loved one, and to share funeral details with family and friends. Funeral notices often include the date of death, some details of the family and the funeral details. Some notices that appear under the "Deaths" section are support notices from family and friends. These do not usually include details of the funeral, only condolence messages from people who knew the deceased. Memoriam Notice A memoriam notice is used to mark the anniversary of the loss of a loved one. Sometimes these include a verse or poem, or sometimes a message from loved ones. We also publish birthday memoriams, which are used to remember a lost loved one’s birthday, and memoriams for special occasions such as Mother's Day/Father’s Day/Christmas Memoriams. Acknowledgement An acknowledgement notice is used to thank family and friends for attending a lost loved one’s funeral service, as well as thanking the Funeral Director and anyone else who helped with the service. Total donations collected can also be announced in an acknowledgement notice. Lasting Tribute A Lasting Tribute notice can be created at any time to commemorate the passing of a loved one. It’s similar to a Memoriam notice, but can be placed at any time, not just on the anniversary of the death. Our lasting tribute pages offer the perfect place for family and friends to get together and share memories of their loved one. Hopefully this explains the different types of notices we offer.

Blue Monday - 20th January 2020
Published 07/07/2020
Blue Monday is the name usually given to the third Monday in January, which is said to be the most depressing day of the year due to a combination of post Christmas blues, cold dark nights and bills stemming from debt due to Christmas. This was apparently calculated using an equation, however the existence of Blue Monday has since been discounted as pseudoscience and therefore not accurate. There's no denying, though, that January can be a tough month to get through. November and December are usually spent building up to the festive period, after which we all tend to feel a little flat. Just having to get back to reality and go back to work can be enough to make most of us struggle to get out of bed, not helped by the dark, dreary mornings. No wonder our motivation levels are at their lowest this time of year.

Welcome to our Blog
Published 07/07/2020
Funeral-notices.co.uk is the number 1 site across the UK for funeral notices, but what does this mean? Reach PLC is the company behind funeral-notices.co.uk, and is the largest publisher in the UK. All death notices, memoriams and acknowledgements that appear in our print publications are also uploaded to funeral-notices.co.uk. This enables the notices to reach as wide an audience as possible, as well as creating a place where people can go to remember their loved ones and leave tributes, photos and light candles in their memory. There are over 4.6 million historic notices on the site, with more than 1 million people each month interacting with these notices. However, we want to offer more to our visitors, which is why we have started this blog. We’re hoping to provide help, information and support to all those using our website who have suffered a bereavement, whether their loved one passed away yesterday or ten years ago. Some posts will help visitors wishing to place a notice on our site or in one of our publications, while others will provide information on the more personal side of bereavement. Hopefully the information provided will enable you to get the most from our site, as well as helping you through what we know is a difficult time. If there's anything you'd like to see us blog about, please e-mail help@funeral-notices.co.uk for the attention of Laura. Thanks for reading.
